This amazing Saturated Canary image was coloured using the amazing promarkers. I then mounted the image on a 5x5 card blank stamped in brilliance ink with a dotted floral background stamp from Judikins.
To complete the look I colour tinted the ribbon and used a diamante buckle to complete the look.
This will be submitted for this week's passion for promarker theme.
I hope you like it.

OK so I have a confession the amazing idea I had to do an image transfer failed. But thankfully I managed to claw it back to something I am sort of growing to like.
The background as it stands now has a couple of layers of white tissue paper stamped on using archival purple ink and two shades of grey from the Stazon range, applied to the canvas to create a feeling of height and texture (not the best picture apologies).
A tip I have learnt always remember to ensure whatever design you do you decorate the edges of the canvas to make it complete.

OK so just a few purchases from today in this picture:-
Stampers Sampler Take Ten Summer 2012 and Autumn 2012, Zig Stampendous Clear Backed Brush Stroke Stamps in large purple, Gold rubons of wings and crowns etc; for my art journalling and the Waving Crock (SA-7031) and Jolly Bear (SA-7010)
In the picture above you can see I bought further large and small clear backed brush marker text for my art journalling along with the latest copies of Stampers Sampler and Somerset Studio. The stamps pictured are Etched Heart (SA-7036), Etched Square (SA-7040), Mermaid (SA-7033) and Goldfish (no reference sorry).
Below I increased my crafty stash of the wonderful Tim Holtz distress stains and hope to do a post later in the week using some recent techniques for distress markers with distress stains. My new colours today were:-
Tattered Rose, Scattered Straw, Rusty Hinge, Barn Door, Aged Mahogony, Weathered Wood, Bundled Sage and Shabby Shutters as you can see they fit perfectly into my craft unit on the wall so I can see first glance what is available to me.
Have had a very busy couple of weeks with my new job and although I love it and have made some good friends so far, you cant beat a bit of craft this weekend.
So later after my retail distraction and a haircut I shall post again with a piccie of my purchase, and hopefully the completed Lightning Canvas (with maybe a card or two too) for your delectation.
